Looking Glass Creamery

Looking Glass Creamery

Looking Glass Creamery is must stop on the WNC (Western North Carolina) Cheese Trail. Jennifer and Andy Perkins opened the creamery in early 2009. Since then, they have won many awards and continue to expand their small farm. They handcraft a spectrum of cheeses, from fresh chevre to soft-ripened pasteurized varieties to hard, aged raw milk cheeses. For the past four years, Williams-Sonoma selected their cheeses to be the NC Collection in their catalog. 

Looking Glass Creamery

Their creamery cheeses are made from fresh cow milk. Chocolate Lab is their original washed-rind cheese rubbed with cacao nibs. Ridgeline is a buttery cheese with a subtle, nutty flavor. Also, try their Bear Wallow Alpine Style raw milk cheese and their Drovers Road cheddar. Their Carmoolita caramel sauce is a sweet treat.
